Support The Podcast Digest on Patreon!

After 80 episodes, the host of my very first podcast recommendation, The Cell Phone Junkie joins me this week on TPD! Mickey Papillon is the creator and host of the show, running now for over 500 weekly episodes! Combined with other shows, Mickey has hosted more than 650 shows!  Wow!  We talk about the world of technology, the origins of TCPJ, working with his co-host Joey, and what the feedback from listeners has been like. This one gets a little nerdy and I loved it!
